The Ukrainian government will resume maritime grain exports later this week, infrastructure minister Oleksandr Kubrakov said on Monday.

Some 3 million tons of cereals are to be exported per month via Red Sea ports under a Ukrainian-Russian agreement reached a few days ago in Istanbul, Kubrakov said at a press conference according to Interfax.

A coordination center will be created in Istanbul to supervise the humanitarian corridor for the grain exports and will start operating on 27 July, he said.
